Universal Access Home

Project Description

The proposed Universal Access Home is a north-facing family residence accessed from the west. It’s designed to provide easy maneuverability for everyone in the family, from the new baby in a pram, the domestic pets, and all the occupants including the infirm who may use a wheelchair.
Visitors can navigate between the three floors by using the 1:12 ramps in the south, or the flights of stairs in the north.
The three-bedroom suites are located on the first floor, and upstairs on the second floor is the open-plan entertainment and dining suite.
The flat roof accommodates photovoltaic panels, enabling the home to harvest solar energy.  Further features that enhance the environmental sustainability include the use of local stone on the cavity walls for naturalistic thermal regulation.

In a few weeks we’re finalizing the finishes and will update you on the ultimate proposal.
